MOEBIUS PASSES AWAY...


JEAN HENRI GASTON GIRAUD. (May 8th, 1938 -
March 10th, 2012)

JEAN GIRAUD, also known as MOEBIUS, has sadly passed away.
I have to confess that I wasn't a fan of his SILVER SURFER graphic
novel, PARABLE, with STAN LEE (nor did I share his rather strange
views on lettering), but when it came to doing the stuff he was good
at (which was a lot), he was very good indeed. Comics are the
poorer for his passing.


I'll leave it to others better acquainted with the man's life and career
to pen a more detailed tribute than I'm capable of. I just didn't want his
passing to go by without commenting upon it myself. No doubt some
of the many fine blogs in the list on the right of the page will have their
own thoughts to express about the legendary artist, so keep your eyes
peeled. I'm sure they'll do him proud.
